20120204104METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR DOCUMENT PRESENTATION AND ANALYSIS - A document analysis system receives multiple concepts along with multiple reference documents and generates sensory indicators that assist a researcher in assessing the relevance of each of the documents to the concepts. In one exemplary aspect, the document analysis system displays a table of keywords separated into blocks, each block of keywords corresponding to one of the concepts. Each block is colored according to the prevalence of any keyword within a given keyword group. The color of a block thus indicates the relative presence of a concept in the document. The document analysis system also determines a unique color for each block of keywords for highlighting in the text of the document. In this manner a researcher can quickly identify passages that contain multiple concepts. Additionally, the researcher is provided the ability to quickly locate reference characters, figure numbers and patent numbers in the document.08-09-2012

20120151336GENERATION AND CACHING OF CONTENT IN ANTICIPATION OF PRESENTING CONTENT IN WEB CONFERENCES - A method, system and computer program product for sharing the contents of a presentation in a web conference. A web conference server in a web conferencing system extracts a document that is likely to be viewed by the presenter during the web conference prior to the presenter actually viewing the document. The web conference server processes the extracted document into a displayable screen image which is sent to the participant computers in the web conference to be cached. When the presenter computer actually displays the extracted document, the web conference server informs the participant computers to display the cached screen image. Since the screen image of the document has already been cached by the participant computers, the document will be more quickly viewed by the participant computers and will reduce the time lag between when the presenter views the document and when the audience views the same content.06-14-2012

20080209314SYSTEM AND METHOD OF RETRIEVING AND PRESENTING PARTIAL (SKIPPED) DOCUMENT CONTENT - Systems and methods of retrieving and presenting partial (skipped) document content are provided. A typical system includes a document parsing stage, a device request for content stage and a delivery of requested content stage. A target device can include a device presentation of the requested content stage. The system parses the content of an electronic document and generates a document object model (DOM) representation of the electronic document, where each source and destination target is assigned a document object model identifier (DOM ID). In some instances, upon completion of parsing, the document object model is then paginated in computer memory into segments of a certain size called chunks; in such instances the pagination operation can update each DOM ID with an additional information attribute containing the chunk index with the purpose of establishing a relationship between a document object model identifier and the corresponding chunk index. Thus, when a device requests specific content corresponding to the DOM ID the chunk index value indicates the correct chunk to be returned to the device. The device initiates a document viewing experience by requesting, parsing and displaying an initial chunk of document content as delivered by the corresponding server. The device can, upon parsing the data chunk, record navigational information provided in the form of link information containing corresponding DOM ID and Chunk Index information. The link information can in certain instances be presented visually by a dotted underline.08-28-2008
